You can get a discount on the purchase price of a brand new low-emission vehicle through a grant given to vehicle dealerships and manufacturers by the government.
Cars that have CO2 emissions of less than 50g/km and can travel at least 70 miles (112km) without any emissions at all can qualify - not all low-emission vehicles will get a grant, only those that have been approved by the government are eligible.
The dealer will include the grant in the vehicle’s purchase price up to the value of 35 per cent of the price, to a maximum of £3,500.
Cars such as the Audi e-tron, BMW i3 and i3s, Hyundai KONA Electric, Jaguar I-PACE, Nissan e-NV200, Nissan LEAF, Tesla Model 3, Tesla Model X and Volkswagen e-Golf qualify.
For mopeds and motorbikes that have no CO2 emissions and can travel at least 50km (31 miles) between charges, can qualify for Government grants up to 20 per cent of the purchase price, capped at a maximum £1,500.
Electric vans with the best CO2 emissions, such as the Citroen Berlingo, Mercedes-Benz eVito, Nissan e-NV200 (cargo van) and Peugeot ePartner, can qualify for a grant up to 20 per cent of the purchase price, to a maximum of £8,000, while the cleanest taxi also qualifies for a Government grant of up to 20 per cent of the purchase price, capped at £7,500.
